'So You Think You Can Dance'While there was joy in the studio on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX) this evening, thanks to a record eight Emmy nominations for the show, it was still elimination night. But that didn't mean they couldn't spare a few moments of congratulations for the series' first nod in Best Reality Competition Series and Cat Deeley's well-deserved nomination for Best Reality Host.

Deeley then put that hosting right to business, working her way through the night, splitting the dancers in half, with three couples facing elimination and three couples moving directly into the Top 10 and the All-Stars next week. And, for the first time this season, the eliminated pair were not an existing couple.

Two Dancers Sent to the Hospital on 'So You Think You Can Dance' Hell Week (VIDEO)

Ryan Ramirez, 'So You Think You Can Dance'It was 'Hell Week' on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on FOX), which is one of the most brutal boot camps of any reality show. The dancers work from sun-up to well past sun-down most days, and all that training with so little rest takes its toll.

This season saw two early notable contestants sent to the hospital. Sasha and Natalia Mallory auditioned side-by-side, and even took to the stage together for their solo performance in Vegas.

So it was no surprise that Sasha was ready to follow Natalia to the hospital when the latter's blood sugar dropped and the medics recommended she get checked out.

Regis Philbin and Cat Deeley talk about Donald Trump on 'Live with Regis and Kelly'Donald Trump's hair has been the butt of many a joke, but Regis Philbin, for one, likes it and said so today on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated). He doesn't understand why anyone, including Oprah Winfrey, would want to change it.

Guest host Cat Deeley brought up a news story about Winfrey wanting to give Trump a makeover. Philbin jokingly said Trump should "stay away from that woman," because she might do "evil things" to him in a makeover.

But Philbin said he thinks Trump is handsome. "What's wrong with Trump's hair?" he asked. "What do they want The Trump to do? Once in a while the wind blows, and that's about it."

Deeley seemed somewhat smitten as well. She stayed at one of Trump's hotels, and said she got the royal treatment, including strawberries dipped in chocolate. "I think he actually dipped my strawberries in chocolate," she said. Hope he wore a hair net.

Larry HagmanLarry Hagman is out of TNT's new 'Dallas' series? That's news to him.

Reports last week had Hagman dropped from the project, but the former 'I Dream of Jeannie' star told TV Guide he is unaware of the the negotiation halt.

"We were talking about money, but I didn't know it was going to come to a crashing halt like that," Hagman told TV Guide. "You got a scoop for whatever that's worth: Larry Hagman doesn't know what's going on!"

In November, Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray were in talks to join the TNT series. Hagman read the script and said he liked it. It features a single J.R. who hasn't changed much.

"I thought I wanted to do it, but I didn't know it had come to this," he said. "We were so close to [a deal], I didn't know there was an issue. I thought more or less we had it down, unless this is a scare tactic. But I don't need to be scared at my age.

"I'd miss playing with Patrick and Linda, that's for sure, because we're all buddies," he said.

Host Cat Deeley Loses It On Live TV? (VIDEO)

by Ryan McKee, posted Oct 14th 2010 7:15PM
We're 99 percent sure this video featuring Cat Deeley is fake. If it's real then we'll finally admit British snobs are correct and TV really is better across the pond. Either way it's even funnier than Sarah Murdock announcing the wrong winner on 'Australia's Next Top Model.'

Cat Deeley is Europe's Ryan Seacrest (but more attractive). Currently she's the host of both the U.K. and U.S. versions of 'So You Think You Can Dance,' and has emceed several other reality shows. But we're not sure which show this clip is from or supposed to parody.

Adam Shankman Makes a Gay Marriage Proposal to Nigel Lythgoe (VIDEO)

Adam Shankman Makes a Gay Marriage Proposal to Nigel LythgoeWell, today is the day. Today is the day that Proposition 8 was legally overturned. In case you haven't been paying attention, Proposition 8 was an amendment that forbade gay couples from getting married in the state of California. And now, it's gone.

In order to celebrate this event, 'So You Think You Can Dance' judge Adam Shankman decided to propose to his fellow judge Nigel Lythgoe. Oh, nice! Gutsy! But will Adam's wedding pitch actually work out?

We wouldn't call 'So You Think You Can Dance' a "gay" show (not that it would matter if it was). ... But it is, at least, fairly flamboyant. On the current episode (Wed., 8PM ET on Fox), the judges got pretty hot and bothered following Lauren's sexy performance with fellow dancer Pasha. "My eyes steamed up," Nigel said, after witnessing their routine. He seemed so aroused that he confessed to wanting to tango with male partner Pasha: "My god! I wanted to dance with you!"

Then, Adam decided to jokingly segue from that remark, by asking Nigel to join him in a gay wedding. "I would like to ... ask my colleague and friend Nigel Lythgoe to marry me."

The 'So You Think You Can Dance' Judges Make Their Final DecisionThis is it! This is the last week that the judges can eliminate contestants on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 9PM ET on Fox). So really, this is the time for the judges' final decision. (And yes, we realize that we already said that in the headline. Just wanted to drive that point home, in case you weren't paying attention.)

[Spoiler alert.]

Tonight's episode involved the elimination of two contestants -- which has never happened before. Billy, Jose, and Lauren were potentially about to be kicked off. No! Not Lauren! She's the only girl left on this show!

In the end, the formerly injured Billy was kicked off, and Jose as well. Lauren was saved. And now we're down to four contestants. Hopefully, the judges have made the right decisions up to this point. Because after this, they don't get to have a say. All the voting for the final contestants will be done by you, the viewers. So do a good job, guys.

'American Idol' on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (VIDEO)

'American Idol' on 'So You Think You Can Dance'We had an exciting live show tonight on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on Fox). Due to the odd results of last week's show, not one, but two dancers were up for elimination on this week's episode. But that all paled next to judge Nigel Lythgoe's weird slip of the tongue.

[Spoiler alert.]

Nigel may be returning as the executive producer on the upcoming season of 'American Idol.' And even after watching Lauren and Allyson's pretty stunning performance, he still seemed pretty distracted by the thought of that. When host Cat Deeley asked him for his reaction to Lauren's dance, Nigel seemed a little confused. He praised Lauren, and agreed that her routine was "powerful," but then said: "This is the first time we've ever seen [anything like] it on 'American Idol.'" Whoops! Wrong show, Nigel! Mr. Lythgoe then swiftly tried to recover.

By the way, rumor has it that if Nigel takes over as producer on 'Idol,' he will eliminate all of the current judges, and will replace them. Two of the possible replacements are -- Elton John and Justin Timberlake. What do you folks think? Does this sound like a good idea to you?

Right? But when it came time to do the eliminating, Nigel Lythgoe confessed that the judges were suffering from a mild bout of confusion.

"We haven't made up our minds," Nigel said to host Cat Deeley.

" ... You haven't?" Cat replied.

Billy, Robert, and Jose were up for potential elimination. Last night, as you may remember, Billy Bell became the third injured dancer on this season's show. And the previous two injured dancers have already left the contest. ... What to do, what to do? Should another wounded contestant be bounced off the series? Billy made the judges' decision a little harder -- because doctors had cleared him to dance. Yet he still refused to perform this week.

Pain, Tears -- and an Incredible Routine on 'So You Think You Can Dance'We had ANOTHER injury on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on Fox). What's going on with this show? Is it suffering from a voodoo curse? Is the stage built over an ancient Indian burial ground? We've never seen so many dancers go down before.

[Spoiler alert.]

Billy Bell became the third injured contestant this season -- after hurting his knee during rehearsal. Now, he's in the dreaded "Bottom Three," and faces elimination. Ashley and Alex, the two previously hurt dancers, have both left the show. Will Billy be able to survive?

We can't know Billy's fate yet, so let's move on to the good news. Adechike had an amazing performance tonight, dancing to 'Fallin'' by Alicia Keys. In the end, Adechike poured so much emotion into his routine that he ended up crying during the judges' review. Adam Shankman summed up the judges' universally positive reaction to the dance. Pointing at the weeping Adechike, Shankman said this: "Everything that you're feeling right now: look at you .. that is how you made me feel."

Another Injury Sends a Dancer Home on 'So You Think You Can Dance'Once again, outside factors are playing a part on 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 9PM on Fox). For the second week in a row, a dancer has been kicked off the show, not because of failure on their part -- but due to an injury.

[Spoiler alert.]

Last week, Alex was booted from the show. This time around, it was Ashley. It was all very sad. But the judges wanted to take into account Ashley's safety and her personal health. They felt that she needed at least three to five weeks of rest, and so, Ashley was unable to continue on the series.

Ashley cried upon being removed from the contest. "How do you feel at this exact moment?" asked host Cat Deeley.

"I'm very disappointed," said Ashley. " ... And it just hurts -- that I have to leave like this." Ashley was weeping as she spoke these words. Then, she tried to apologize to Cat.

"Don't say 'sorry,'" Cat replied. "You tried your hardest." Yes. Please don't apologize, Ashley. You didn't do anything wrong. It's just an unfortunate injury.

A Judge Cries on 'So You Think You Can Dance'On tonight's episode of 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Wed., 8PM ET on Fox), we had a performance that resonated on several different levels.

Robert and Allison danced to the song 'Fix You' by Coldplay. Their performance was managed by choreographer Travis Wall, whose mother has recently undergone surgery -- and the dance was meant to convey the experience of having an ailing mother.

As it turned out, judge Mia Michaels has recently lost her mother. And watching the performance brought her to tears. "It brings me back to the last week before my mom passed," she said. "And how much I wanted to 'fix her.'"

It was quite an amazing dance routine. And in the end, it made Mia break down and start crying.
